For Halloween, Tweak was Yellow Bird from Angry Birds, and Tink was some sort of fairy, not, she was very specific on this point, a Disney fairy. If you're looking for someone to explain instructions for cute DIY costumes, I don't do that. Yellow Bird came from Target. Tink chose her own outfit and asked for a sequined top and fairy wings from Target to supplement, and the mask was just a bonus. Done and done. It's how I roll.
|Ground rule: do NOT pretend that Mommy is a pig and try to knock her over. Or Daddy. Or other children or the neighbors or their pets.|
|At various points, she was doing martial arts moves. Mentally, I dubbed her the "Don't-F*ck-With-Me Fairy."|
Anyway, I post this stuff not to be a downer, but to give a shout-out to everyone who sucks it up and trick-or-treats with an ex-spouse, even when it's awkward. At least there's candy. And, these are memories I'm glad we both get to have of the kids, and that they get to have of us, being grownups and letting them have their night, their way. All I ask in return is a cut of the candy.
